The Isan people of Laos are named after the Hindu god of destruction. The 13 million Hui are the largest Chinese-Muslim people group in east Asia. But the Lord of life has a very different future for them.

English teachers are eagerly desired, especially in countries that are difficult to access. Now, a new opportunity for workers has developed in universities.

“Teaching in the university setting with the legitimacy of the Chinese government behind it opens the door for opportunities to share the gospel carefully outside the classroom,” said Converge global worker David J.

Now, Converge is seeking at least five workers to teach English in universities. Teachers are asked to build relationships for one to three years.

“Because we teach well, we get respect,” said one English teacher at a Chinese university. “That opens doors to the gospel.”
